As some of you may have heard, Ana Espiritu, the office manager of Drs. Elliott and Summer Black's office, suffered a catastrophic bleed in her brain.  She was taken to the operating room for emergency surgery to remove the blood clot the day after Christmas.  She is currently in the ICU on a breathing machine with a ventriculostomy tube to help control the increased pressure on her brain. She is not conscious and is fighting for her life.  Ana is only 47 years old.  She immigrated with her family to the United States from the Philippines when she was young.  Ana has worked at Dr. Black's office for nearly 20 years. Ana knows all of the patients by name and they all love her dearly.  Ana has been married to her wonderful husband Rico for 23 years.  They are the parents of three young boys aged 11, 10, and 8.  As you can imagine, her family is devastated.  We have all been praying nonstop for her, her family and the doctors and nurses that have been working around the clock to save her life.  For those that would like to contribute, we have set up a gofund me page to help with the expenses her family will incur during this difficult time.  Please pass this along to your prayer warriors and ask everyone to pray for her recovery.  She and her family really need your prayers this holiday season. We love you all and thank you for all of your kind words, prayers, and support.

UPDATE 1-5-18
I spoke to Ana's sister Nancy today. It has been 10 days since surgery and Ana is finally off of the ventilator and breathing well on her own. She is still in the ICU but is doing a little better everyday. Ana and her family are so appreciative of all of your prayers and support. Please continue to keep Ana and her family in your prayers.

Update - January 1st, 2018
Ana is making progress. I say this with caution because she is still very critical and Ana’s progress could change at any time, so please KEEP PRAYING. Your prayers are VERY powerful.

Ana seems more conscious but she isn’t fully conscious either. Today she was able to wiggle her toes when her sister asked her to. Ana is still on the breathing machine and is in and out of consciousness.

Ana’s family is humbled and grateful for the prayers generosity! Every donation raised here will go directly to Ana’s Family to help with the financial burden this beloved family is facing.

Please keep praying and sharing this link with your family and friends.

We love and appreciate all of you and I will keep you updated as I know more.

UPDATE: I just spoke to Ana’s sister and she wanted me to let you know that Ana is stable today. She doesn't seem to be any worse, which is good. She is still unconscious and on the ventilator. Hopefully we will see more improvements over the next few days as the swelling goes down. Her family is deeply moved and forever grateful for the outpouring of generosity, kind words and prayers for Ana! Please keep those prayers going and I will continue to update you as I know more.
